Webcomic: Sister Claire
Claire shows off her Holy Watergun
Pregnant nun, Holy Crap!

Sister Claire is a webcomic by Elena Barbarich (a.k.a Yamino). The genre is dramatic/bizarro comedy, and the series takes heavy inspiration from Junko Mizuno, The Powerpuff Girls, Alice in Wonderland, and The Wizard of Oz. Known for its hidden Easter Eggs and homages, Sister Claire is definitely a Shout-Out comic.

Sister Claire is a novice nun, and all she ever wanted was a purpose in life, and a kitty would be nice, too. But when a beautiful blue businesswoman named Gabrielle explodes out her toilet and tells her she's pregnant with the new Messiah, this Celibate Heroine realizes she may be in for more than she bargained for: a kaleidoscopic adventure to protect her miraculous baby (and possibly the universe.)

Sister Claire's best friend and mentor, Sister Catharine, is unfortunately extremely allergic to cats, which is why Claire is forbidden to play with them. Unfortunately for Catharine, Claire can't seem to stay away from her best cat-friend Snowy for long, and this brings down harsh punishment from the terrifying Sister Marguerite, who finds every excuse to torment Claire with cruel and creative punishments.

Claire initially crumbles under the guilt of accidentally aggravating Catharine's cat allergies and from the pressure of becoming the mother of the new Messiah. (Her pregnancy is confirmed by a flurry of strange blue babies, who turn out to be rather disposable.) The plot thickens as Sister Catharine appears to be stalked by an evil Cheshire-like cat, who eventually possesses her, turning her into the evil Sister Cat.

After temporarily defeating Sister Cat with her holy Watergun, Claire begins her training in Nun Fu. And as the story continues, it's revealed that there's more going on than Gabrielle let on and much bigger threats on the horizon coming Clarie's way. Will her newfound training see her through before the birth of her child?

Updated Mondays (bar any last minute interruptions or planned trips. Along with other projects, Yamino's still in college. You know how it is). With Missing Moment stories (Text based stories that focus on the characters pasts) updated Tues-Thurs with the occasional bonus story on Friday.

Now has a character sheet. Please contribute.
